Description: Vintage cloth; found objects; embroidery; layered cloth and hand-stitching are all artfully combined by Tilly Rose to create unique textile artworks that tell a story; record a special event; or preserve; display and celebrate a memory of a special person or place. Tilly describes how to create these textile artworks using scraps of fabric; thread; lace; ribbon; buttons; beads; photographs and other found items that readers either already own or have sourced from elsewhere.
The projects take various forms; including cloth journals; lavender hearts; hoop art; framed collages; wall hangings and miniature quilts; and involve a variety of easy techniques that are explained through step-by-step demos at the start of the book. These include layering and collage; hand embroidery; creating your own fabrics; transferring your designs to cloth; stamping on cloth; applique; embellishing; patchwork; quilting; free motion embroidery and photo transfer.
Create a textile artwork using fabric and items from your wedding; a childs first birthday; a Christening or your honeymoon; or even family heilooms that can be cherished in a new way. The whole focus of the book is on inspiration and experimentation - encouraging the reader to be creative; collecting and sourcing materials of special significance and incorporating them into textile artworks that become treasured keepsakes
